GREEK NIGHT

By

Gentle rain falls on Levin’s Greek Orthodox Monastery of the Holy Archangels nestled in the foothills of Gladstone Road. It is perhaps one of the district’s best kept secrets, not for any overt reason, purely that a serene and slightly isolated place is most conducive for study and prayer. Undiscovered is perhaps a better description. The six monks who live within have simple needs, and even more simple wants. They spend much of their day in prayer, occasionally venturing to town when the need arises which isn’t often. They are ‘men in black’ wearing a cassock and soft monastic hat. Father Meletios speaks highly of their acceptance in the Horowhenua community. ‘‘I have received only kindness and friendliness here,’’ he said. ‘‘I understand the sight of an Orthodox monk is not commonplace here as it is in other parts of the world.’’ He speaks English with a hint of his native Serbia. The monastery is unremarkable as a building, hugely overshadowed, not in size but in beauty, by the freestanding Greek Orthodox church metres away. Archbishop of New Zealand and the Pacific

church being built four years ago. He was in Fiji at the time of my visit, overseeing a new

orphanage being built in Labasa. A Fijian priest and his wife are visiting the Levin monastery for two months to study. We share lunch. I feel welcome and privileged to be here. Fasting since Easter lasts for 40 days but is not abstaining from all food. ‘‘We don’t eat animal products at this time,’’ Father explains. The meal is superb, followed by strong, sweet coffee. We talk about the history behind the Orthodox church, the architecture of the churches around the world, life as a monk in Levin, the future of the Levin monastery. There are plans to build a reception room on the site. ‘‘We want to have somewhere people can come and be greeted, to talk to spend time,’’ he said. ‘‘We welcome anyone to come and visit, please know you are welcome.’’

YOUR VIEWS

Rates

If you think that you are the only person having difficulty paying your rates you are not alone. It was reported at the Horowhenua District Council meeting on Tuesday 2 April 2014 in the Finance Subcommittee report date March 26 2014 that there is a very large number of ratepayers behind with their rate payments and this is only going to increase

with the upcoming 9.92 per cent increase that is expected to be approved by councillors and the mayor after the consultation process ends. You need to be familiar with the advantage the Rates Rebate Scheme offers to persons on low incomes. Talk to Council staff about this you are paying for their services through your rates. Ratepayers can only have faith in the process and they

have to rely on the Council being open and honest when listening to the residents and ratepayers submissions. Ratepayers or residents can join the Horowhenua District Ratepayers and Residents Association Inc. for $5, email kamahi1@clear.net.nz or bjandc@paradise.net.nz or send your joining fee to the treasurer of HDRRAI 5 Low Ave Foxton Beach 4815 enclosing e-mail address, postal

Water supply

The HDC councillors expect 2 per cent population growth and an increase in peak water demand to 16300m3/day or about 15 per cent above the allowable take from the Ohau river. Their response in water management plan is only to promote water conservation. Population growth will be stifled without a sufficient supply of water. Surely planning should be to increase the amount of water available. There are good underground aquifers in the district, but that resource may already be fully committed. A very large proportion of the rainfall in the Ohau catchment runs directly out to sea. Obviously long term planning is needed to provide storage dams in the hills that can maintain river flows over prolonged dry spells, so both the ecological damage of low river flows can be avoided and a greater take from the river allowed for the district’s water supply. The HDC must plan for this, or fail in it’s obligation to residents of the Horowhenua. JOHN WHITE Levin

NEWS IN BRIEF Arthritis support

On Monday Levin Arthritis Support Group will meet at the Hudson Room, Levin Cosmopolitan Club. Anyone suffering from any of the many forms of arthritis and their carers are welcome, to help improve their quality of life through fellowship and knowledge. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month at 1.30pm in the Hudson Room at the Levin Cosmopolitan Club, Oxford Street, Levin. Monday’s meeting is a fun afternoon of bingo. A donation of a couple of non-perishable grocery items for prizes please. For more information please call Yvonne on 368-5068.

By FRANKIE WEBB Waitarere Beach artist Jill Brandon is anything but bohemian which is what her father feared she would be if she attended art college. ‘‘We reached a compromise,’’ she said. ‘‘He allowed me to study for a year.’’ Accepted at the highly regarded Elam School of Fine Arts she attempted to find commercial art work. ‘‘I had no ambition to be a commercial artist so confess I didn’t look very hard.’’ Unable to find a position, her father agreed to let her studies continue which resulted in a double degree in art history and painting. Working in oils Jill takes most of her subject matter from nature, some showing the influence of the impressionists era. ‘‘Painting is in my blood,’’ Jill said. ‘‘ I believe I was born to paint.’’ Adopted as a baby she has no real knowledge of her background, her children all have artistic flair confirming her belief art is ‘in the genes’. Travelling throughout New Zealand, and off shore, she has an array of work some of which will be on exhibition at Te Takere this weekend as part of the Horowhenua Arts Trail.

Consents on time

In the 2012-13 period Horizons received 374 consent applications and processed them all within the Resource Management Act statutory timeframe. In a letter received by the council, Minister for the Environment, Amy Adams has praised Horizons Regional Council for processing of all consents on time. Horizons chief executive Michael McCartney says the 100 per cent success rate is due to good project management by consents staff.

If you’ve ever wanted a ride in a big rig, a helicopter, a police car (by choice) or even a dump truck, Levin Basketball Association is about to grant your wish. The Under 15 Boys and Girls teams will play a tournament in Napier over Queen’s Birthday Weekend and are fundraising on Sunday at Donnelly Park by holding a ‘‘Ride Day’’. For $3 you can ride in a big rig truck, police car, muscle car, vintage car, dump trucks or helicopter, for $5 you can have two. The event kicks off from 11am to 3pm.

Loo statement a welcome amenity Residents in Devon St were having a good chuckle over the latest convenience added to their street — an old toilet advertising the latest Horowhenua District Council public loo. Far from bogging down the corner of Devon and Salisbury St, the impromptu public loo provided entertainment for teenagers, spotted sitting on it taking

2 LT MILK

photos of themselves, and a welcome break for one lady to take a rest while out walking. Devon St resident Judy Feldon said the toilet was there Saturday morning when she woke up. ‘‘It was entertaining watching people’s reaction to the loo. We don’t know how it got there or who took it away on Monday but it’s been a great hoot.’’

STATION VISIT: Foxton Beach Volunteer Fire Brigade host pupils from Foxton Beach School.

Fun at the fire station By FRANKIE WEBB Foxton Beach School new entrants teacher Sue Mortensen organised a visit to Foxton Beach Fire Station. The class of 20 aged five and six got a chance to sit in a fire engine, and hold a fire hose. The local fire crew answered questions.

The visit enticed more than one little person to work towards becoming a volunteer fireman in a few years time. Like most volunteer fire brigades around the country there’s always an opening for more volunteers. Not all positions are frontline fire fighting.

FIRE VOLUNTEERS Fire Service volunteers must be 16 years old or over and, if you’re under 18 years old, you will need the consent of a parent or guardian. Almost anybody wanting to contribute to their community can join a brigade. There are opportunities for people from all backgrounds within a volunteer fire brigade. The role you play in a Brigade depends completely on what you would like to do. You can be hands-on at an emergency, or you can provide support to those people who are. You can have a role that doesn’t expose you to emergency incidents. Whatever role you choose to fill entails attendance at a weekly Brigade training night. For information contact the Chief Fire Officer at any of the volunteer fire brigades in Horowhenua.

Aroha String Quartet will perform on Sunday May 18 at the Waikanae Memorial Hall, at 2.30pm. The quartet was formed in 2004 by a group of Chinese friends, all professional musicians living in Wellington. Since that time two of the original members have left, and first

They have developed a following both in New Zealand and overseas — later this year they will

tour as part of Chamber Music New Zealand’s Celebrity Season. The talented quartet’s programme for Waikanae features works by Mozart and Schubert and Eight Chinese Folk Tunes by Chinese composer Zhou Long. ■ Enquiries are welcome on 04 905-6070 or visit www.waikanaemusic.org

Govt funding activates local health initiatives

LVN040514fwbudget1

HELP AT HAND: Levin Budget Service budget advisers Donna Monk and Adie Campbell love tackling people’s financial woes and offer budgeting skills. If it sounds like something you would like to do, contact the Levin Budget Service to find out how to become a qualified budget advisor. PHOTO: FRANKIE WEBB

Further commitment to Budget Service By FRANKIE WEBB Over the next four years $22 million will be injected into budgeting in New Zealand. Levin Budget Service should be in line for a share. The Community Response Fund that helped budgeting services handle the influx of clients during the economic recession ended over a year ago, Minister for Social Development Paula Bennett said a review of budgeting service funding had been in the pipeline since.

New Zealand has 160 Budget Service offices, including the one in Levin. They offer budgeting advice totally free of charge, some clients are referred by WINZ but many are self-referred. Volunteer budget advisers help people to help themselves with the belief it is better to train people to develop budgeting skills rather than be caught in a constant cycle of bills and debts. Volunteer budget advisers need to be part counsellor, part lawyer, part

insolvency expert, and part coach. They undergo rigorous training at no cost to themselves. Some of the funding promised will go towards training. Levin Budget Service is always eager to recruit new volunteers and, while budget advisers are eagerly sought, there are other voluntary positions available too. ■ For information contact Levin Budget Service Ph 368-5924 or email levinbudgetservice@xtra.co.nz

It has been great to see the recent focus and effort going into meningitis locally. This is a highly contagious and deadly disease that can strike at any moment. It was encouraging to read local stories of people taking the disease seriously. The message has been not to take any chances and get help as soon as symptoms appear. I want to acknowledge the Gallagher family of Levin, who after their tragic loss have established a support group for families affected by meningitis in Horowhenua. Through helping each other we increase our chances of responding to these challenging situations in the future. Vaccinations are now available on a widespread level. Anyone who has any concerns should contact the free Healthline on 0800 611 116 for advice. It was also great to see that Kapiti has been chosen as the first location for a new nationwide initiative supporting health consumers with reduced mobility. Life Pharmacy Coastlands was selected to be the first outlet available which is great news for our region. The Government has announced that in Budget 2014 we will invest an extra $20 million over the next four years to combat New Zealand’s high rate of rheumatic fever. Rheumatic fever is a serious, but preventable, disease and we are committed

to stamping it out completely. Free drop-in sore-throat clinics will be expanded for young people. A large part is raising awareness of the disease among professionals and our community. As a result, more cases of rheumatic fever are being identified and treated. There is also more investment being made to assist those affected by hearing-loss. Budget 2014 is providing an extra $6.3 million over four years for a bilateral cochlear implants programme for children. Children with profound hearing loss will now receive two funded cochlear implants. I am looking forward to a positive Budget next Thursday.

FROM MY DIARY ■ Cabinet was on Monday. ■ The House was sitting this week. ■ Today I’m in the electorate.

Horowhenua economy measuring up nationally Horowhenua’s economic activity continues to grow with many sectors increasing at rates above regional and national averages. The positive gains are shown in Infometrics economic monitoring for the period January 1 2103 to December 31 2013, commissioned by Horowhenua District Council. It shows Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growing by 2 per cent in the year to December 2013.

Agricultural activity surged during the December quarter, driven by a massive lift in dairy activity with the industry buoyed by a combination of soaring world milk production prices and record milk production levels. Horowhenua households are also becoming increasingly willing to spend and invest. Retail spending of $284 million last year was an increase of 3.8 per cent to the previous year. The increase

was nearly three times higher than that for the ManawatuWanganui region (1.4 per cent) and also higher than nationally (3.4 per cent). The number of new cars registered in Horowhenua increased by 35.8 per cent last year, higher than that for the region (10.7 per cent) and nationally (15.7 per cent). Commercial vehicle registrations also soared, up by 40.8 per cent,

aided by favourable vehicle prices and rising business confidence. Residential building consents were up 12.7 per cent, a real contrast to the region’s decrease of 9.5 per cent, while non-residential building consents increased by nearly 36 per cent, also comparing very well against the regional increase of 24.2 per cent and national increase of 5.5 per cent. Horowhenua’s labour market is also improving with the

unemployment rate dropping from 10.6 per cent to 9.5 per cent. Horowhenua Mayor Brendan Duffy says the fact that Horowhenua’s economy continues to grow is proof the District is becoming a more attractive place to live, shop and do business. ‘‘These results show strong signs of optimism and this is encouraging for our community, all of us.’’

Duck shooting season begins

Fishing club stalwart dies Bad weather and treacherous surf left the Waitarere Fishing Club Committee no choice but to cancel the Easter Fishing Contest for the first time. Auctioneer Lloyd Cooper was at the ready for the following fish auction which was also cancelled. The Manawatu River was in flood preventing surfcasters and longliners from fishing as logs washed down into the sea. The club’s disappointment was compounded with the death of honorary life members Norm Matahe. It is hoped next year will be better and the annual competition will go ahead. During a small window of safe conditions three of the club’s most experienced boaties got out and provided fresh snapper for the club’s windup barbecue which was attended by more than 100 people. Chris Judd and Graham Wilton, chefs for the occasion, have been invited to give a demonstration to the Club of their cooking technique, filleting and fish preparation. The club is holding a meeting on Thursday May 15, at Waitarere Scout hall starting at 7pm. Visitors are invited. Public Relations manager of the TAB Mark Stafford being the guest speaker. Mark attends most major sporting events as he is the principal odds maker for sports betting. He often appears and comments on both radio and TV.

ON TARGET: Justin Duncan, of Levin, wasted no time getting into the thick of it on the first day of the duck shooting season. PHOTO: FRANKIE WEBB

Conditions were pretty much perfect in Horowhenua for the first day of duck shooting season. Each season starts on the first Saturday in May. Late summer and early autumn has been drier than usual in Horowhenua. The distribution patterns of birds can be effected by dry conditions moving away from their normal haunts to form group sites anywhere they find water. The rain that fell in Horowhenua just before the season opened made some birds move on to search for food on flooded insect rich paddocks. The mallard season runs for six weeks with a six bird limit, Paradise Shelduck 10 weeks and a 10 bird limit, Black Swan eight weeks and a two bird limit but there is a three bird limit for Queen’s Birthday weekend only, Shoveler six week season and two bird limit. The pheasant season is from May 3 to August 31. ■ For information go to http:/ /wellington.fishandgame.org.nz/

Lifestyle Specific Foods During May we are focusing on the benefits of feeding premium food to your pets. One of many important features which separate premium foods from supermarket brands is having life stage options. Many foods claim to be “suitable for all life stages”, and while they may or may not meet minimum standards, it is simply not true to suggest that a rapidly growing juvenile, a highly active adult and a relatively sedentary senior petizen all need the same type of food. There are several aspects that are different between life stage food options, but the most important ones are calorie content, and calcium levels. We certainly know that someone in their forties cannot eat like a teenager. It is not healthy, and not appropriate to do the same to your pet. The high quality of premium foods mean that it may actually be cheaper to feed your pet with a premium product than a supermarket brand food. While the bag may cost more per weight, the premium food is so nutrient dense that you can feed up to 1/3 less food. This saving can offset the increased cost of purchasing a superior quality food. Ask the helpful and informed staff at your local vet about how changing to a premium food can help your pet. Remember to always change foods gradually, transitioning from the old food to the new over three to five days.

Goodbye to legal highs — but for how long? Parents, local councils and communities across the country are breathing a sigh of relief as synthetic cannabis products are pulled from shop shelves this week. Lydia Anderson looks at the murky future of legal highs and asks how long till they’re back on sale. It’s been a passionate campaign by desperate communities determined to rid their neighbourhoods of an unwanted problem, and the Government has finally been forced to listen. Associate Health minister Peter Dunne’s announcement a week ago that emergency legislation would be rushed through Parliament to stop the sale of legal high products this week was met with both joy and concern. Many applaud the move — even if Mr Dunne admitted the timing was political, forced by Labour unveiling a similar policy. But serious questions are now being asked about what support is available for the countless addicts who will be forced to go cold turkey and when or if legal highs will make a comeback. Community addiction services are bracing for an influx of addicted users suffering withdrawals. It was reported last week Auckland’s state-funded Community Alcohol and Drug Service (CADS) was seeing a marked increase in the number of people seeking help to quit synthetic cannabis.

WHERE TO GET HELP - Call the Alcohol Drug Helpline on 0800 787 797, open from 10am—10pm every day. - Visit the DrugHelp website http://www.drughelp.org.nz. - Phone Healthline on 0800 611-116 for 24-hour health advice and contact details for local mental health crisis teams.

Two to four people a week were now seeking help from CADS, up from about one a week since August, and the service estimates 40 per cent of people seeking its help use the drugs. The new legislation will see all legal high products banned until they can be proven ‘lowrisk’, although a testing regime is yet to be agreed on amid concerns around testing the products on animals.

What happens now?

Despite the temporary ban, local councils are not pumping the brakes on regulating possible future sales of legal highs. Last July’s Psychoactive Substances Act gave local authorities the power to develop a locally approved products policy (LAPP) to determine where legal high products could be sold, but not to completely ban the products’ sale. Regulations covering legal high product approvals are expected to take effect from about July of this year, from which time approval applications can be lodged by synthetic drug makers. The Ministry anticipates the approval process could take 18 to

24 months with the cost to manufacturers estimated at $1 million to $2 million per product. A second phase of regulations covering retail licence applications for the sale of legal highs should

take place in early to mid-2015, by which time councils are expected to have implemented LAPPs, the Ministry says. At least five councils have so far implemented LAPPs, and about 22

others are working through draft policies. Local Government New Zealand president Lawrence Yule, Hastings Mayor, says in the meantime, it’s the responsibility of the Ministry of Health and district health boards to offer recovering addicts help. The Ministry says each DHB will consider what they can currently provide, and determine if any additional services are required. It’s working with addiction services to discuss how services might be impacted after the ban.

TRIP OF A LIFETIME: Horowhenua College students preparing to visit Vietnam with, left, teacher Peter Cadle and, front right, Horowhenua College director of international education Robyn Keeling. LVN050514splvietnam2

HI TO HANOI: In Vietnam for two weeks, these Horowhenua College students were part of a reciprocal visit to Hanoi.

Horowhenua students travel to Hanoi By FRANKIE WEBB Students from Horowhenua College visited Nguyen Tat Thanh High School, Hanoi, Vietnam for two weeks. This year’s trip was a reciprocal visit to Nguyen Tat Thanh High School as its students visited Horowhenua

College in 2013. In 2010, students from Horowhenua College visited Solok, Indonesia, and last year a group visited Beijing and Guangzhou in China. Students don’t miss any school as the trips take place during school holidays. Principal Brenda Burns, who retired after Term One,

encouraged the international flavour and programme at Horowhenua College according to Robyn Keeling, director of international education. ‘‘All students at Horowhenua College have the opportunity to benefit from this programme in many different ways,’’ she said. Horowhenua College is

always looking for homestay families as the number of international students increase. Students stay for between two terms to a number of years. There are also short term visits. Host families for Japanese students between July 30 and August 8 are required.

‘‘With 36 students this will be the largest group we have hosted so far,’’ Mrs Keeling said. Homestay families are paid to host their student. For further information contact Horowhenua College homestay co-ordinator, Mrs Nancy Jones, njones@horowhenua.school.nz

Children to ride safer in Volvo seat Volvo is exploring the future of child protection in cars by developing a revolutionary Inflatable Child Seat Concept. The lightweight and inflatable rear-facing child seat concept uses groundbreaking technology to address the issue of children’s car seats being bulky, hard to move and tedious to mount. Volvo says its inflatable seat is safe, easy to pack and carry and will enable parents to use it in many situations not practical with the seats on the market today. Lawrence Abele, design manager at the Volvo Monitoring and Concept Centre in Los Angeles and the designer behind the new seat, had his two children in mind while designing the concept seat. ‘‘For me child safety is always the number one priority and when we lived abroad with two toddlers we had to haul bulky child seats through airports and then into taxis,’’ he said. The concept presents new opportunities, for example grandparents and friends who take care of your kids and need an ultra-mobile child seat. It is also very convenient when travelling by taxi, rental car or bus, situations where you historically had to rely on the safety measures available. The seat has an innovative pump system that is silent and efficient in its construction. The seat inflates in less than 40 seconds and deflates with an integrated pump. The total weight of the seat less than 5kg — about half the weight of a contemporary seat — and it is constantly online via Bluetooth enabling a wide range of features, including remote-controlled inflation. It fits into a weekend bag together with other necessities for your child. ‘‘We used a unique material called drop-stitch fabric when creating the prototype of the seat,’’ says

• All parts & servicing • Free Warranty Services Servicing all Vehicle types Specialising in Holden, Suzuki, Izuzu and Mazda

Maria Hansson, project manager at Volvo Monitoring and Concept Centre. ‘‘This fabric is very strong when inflated as it can be brought to a very high internal pressure. It is a quite common technology in the boating industry and was originally developed by the military in an effort to develop inflatable airplanes.’’ The Inflatable Child Seat Concept faces the rear of the car, as it is the safest way for children to travel. A child’s neck is under development and not as strong as an adult’s neck. In a frontal impact collision, the head of a forward-facing car occupant is thrown forward inducing great strain on the neck. Children therefore need special restraints and face the rear of the vehicle until at least 3-4 years of age.

WHAT’S IN THE STARS FOR YOU NEXT WEEK ARIES

VIRGO

There is one final showdown in a battle to find a balance between your personal and relationship needs this week and a need for authenticity.

As income and financial forces once again move into opposition this will give you a nose for money and accentuate very positive spin offs.

You’ll never get as close to understanding where you’ve been as you can this week. When things are black and white decisions make themselves.

It’s Venus in your relationship sector and Mars in your sign that are still fighting for a balance but offering lots of incentive to get the balance right.

TAURUS

GEMINI

Your excuses are being challenged this week, especially when it comes to matters of the heart or letting life become all work and no play.

CANCER

This week does see home and

missing out on, not only when it comes to matters of the heart, but on the social front as well.

CAPRICORN

You are well used to work/life balance issues by now with flare off over the last few months a repeat of even bigger challenges in the past.

LIBRA

professional forces clash, but this time in a friendly rivalry that is designed to highlight the benefits on both fronts.

LEO

While Venus is pushing a communication breakthrough Mars is challenging your excuses when it comes to embracing a sense of adventure.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

It’s your gut that will tell you when you need to push yourself and when you need to cut yourself some slack, knowing that it’s about working smarter.

SAGITTARIUS

You’re waking up to what you’ve been

There is no doubt that you are moving into some important professional times but you can’t afford to let life become all work and no play.

PISCES

What you need this week is to spit the dummy, tap into financial passions and a fighting spirit and come out of your corner fighting.

INLINE HOCKEY

For Club bookings tour dates can be arranged to suit

Inline hockey has its origins in the United States and is now played extensively in Europe, North America, South America, Asia and Australasia. The first New Zealand Inline Hockey open tournament was held in May 1995 and New Zealand first qualified for a place in the World Championships at the Asia/Pacific Qualification Tournament in 1999. Inline hockey is played on a smooth, dry surface. Players wear inline skates and protective equipment that includes a helmet with face mask, elbow pads, protective gloves, athletic cup and shin pads. Each team fields three skaters plus a goalie. Using sticks, skaters try to hit the puck, a flat round object, into the back of their opponents net. A game lasts 40 minutes.

By TANYA WOOD Levin inline hockey player Saul Ghent, 22, has been selected for the New Zealand senior men’s team to compete at the world inline hockey championships in France. One of 14 players selected nationally, this will be Ghent’s second world games, having represented the country as an under 21 player at last year’s event in America where the team came third. Ghent is excited about the upcoming tournament which will see the men’s senior team playing in Division Two, against Poland, Colombia and India in their pool. The top two teams from each pool will go through to the quarterfinals. ‘‘Colombia will be the team to beat because they were in Division One last year, which is where the top teams play. I don’t know anything about Poland but I think they’ll be a tough team as well,’’ Ghent said. ‘‘We’ve played an Indian side before and beaten them quite convincingly but you never know on the day how any team will play.’’ Ghent, who works as a chef at the Waikanae Chartered Club, said his interest in the sport was first sparked as an eight-year-old going to the Friday skate nights held at the Events Centre. Playing for the Levin Cunucks and later the Levin Jackals, Ghent has been playing for Hutt Valley team Rimutaka Renegades since 2012. Having made the lower North Island representative team

last year, Ghent was invited to take part in trials to select the national team for the 2014 World Games. Each team fields three skaters and one goalie which gives the 14-strong team a chance to rotate players for the games which last 40 minutes, played in two halves. Ghent, who has played a forward position in the past, said he was now a ‘‘two-way player’’, meaning he can play both offence and defence positions. He said the game is not just about skating from one end to another. ‘‘It’s about making set plays and burying the puck in the back of the net. It’s a game of skill and speed and not for the faint-hearted.’’ Contact is not

EUROPE-BOUND: Levin inline hockey player Saul Ghent has been selected for the New Zealand senior men’s team heading off to France next month to compete in the inline hockey world games. PHOTO: TANYA WOOD encouraged, however, Ghent said. Last year, Ghent had to sit out the remainder of a national tournament following two concussions. The men’s team will leave at the end of June for the World Games held in Toulouse, France, from July 7 to 14.

Feast of fours competition in Levin Levin Central Bowling Club is hosting teams from throughout New Zealand for the Men’s Invitation Fours, which starts play today and goes through until Sunday at Bristol Street. This is the fourth time the club

has held the event. ‘‘It’s a great event for the club and for Levin,’’ organiser Barry Taylor said. ‘‘The format ensures all 32 teams play each of the three days of the tournament, this is a big attraction.’’

For the first time 26 teams from outside the Horowhenua area have entered. Players from Hawera, Hawke’s Bay, Taranaki, Manawatu and Waikato will be challenged by teams closer to home, including

Paraparaumu Beach and Raumati South. Levin Cobb and Co have sponsored the event for the third time. ‘‘We’re really grateful for their support,’’ Mr Taylor said.

INDOOR BOWLS A new committee for the Horowhenua Indoor Bowls Centre has been elected. The new president is Rosie Penn from Foxton and Beach Club; vice president is Graham Booth from Manakau Club; secretary/treasurer is Ruth Munro from Ohau Club; and the selector is Kathy Field from Ohau Club. The first major event on the bowling calendar was the NWWTH in April, a quadrangular match between North Wellington, Wanganui, Taranaki and Horowhenua Centres, with each centre sending four teams. Hosted by Horowhenua this year, and played at Foxton, the event ran smoothly and play was completed on Sunday morning (despite one team locking their keys in the car!). Wanganui headed off North Wellington to win by 5 points, with Taranaki coming third and Horowhenua fourth. Thanks to all the helpers, Carolyn Burr as hall controller did a great job; as did the kitchen staff and all the HIBC players who helped with mats and cleaning up. The next events were two fundraisers run jointly by Tararua IBA and HIBC; these were quite well attended and those who played certainly enjoyed themselves, judging by the laughter and noise which was heard. The sum of $340 raised will be split between the two organisations. On May 3, four HIBC teams travelled to Marton to play Manawatu. The result was a win to Manawatu. Horowhenua have a ‘young’ team this year, in terms of representative experience, but they try hard and respond to the challenges. The match on Sunday against Hutt Valley was an equally tough proposition. The Tararua Interclub competition started on Wednesday at Keepa Street. The next representative match is in Masterton tomorrow against Wairarapa and Bush Ruahine for the Horn Trophy. This year the Tararua Association and Horowhenua Centre have held joint meetings to run indoor bowls in the area and the spirit of co-operation has been encouraging with everyone keen to help.

Work days spark interest in Rotary

23

COMMUNITY CHAMPIONS Rotary is a global network of business, professional and community leaders who live and work in your community. It has a worldwide membership of 1.2 million people, in 33,000 Rotary clubs across more than 200 countries. ‘‘Service above self’’ is its motto and Rotary welcomes like-minded men and women who want to make a difference in their communities. Rotary promotes worldwide peace and understanding through its educational and humanitarian programmes, and undertakes major projects, including Polio Plus which is on course to eradicating polio from the world.

HARD AT WORK: Rotarians help refurbish the changing sheds and surrounds at Foxton Beach primary school during their district conference in March. PHOTO: TANYA WOOD

More people want to know how they can join a Rotary Club after seeing Rotarians in action around the district. Up to 250 Rotarians rolled up their sleeves and successfully completed 10 projects around Horowhenua during a three-day

conference held in March at the Manawatu College in Foxton. The Rotary District 9940 conference aimed to get Rotarians out and about to show the public the type of work they undertake voluntarily within communities. Projects included school

repairs and painting at Foxton Beach and Shannon primary schools, riverbank plantings at Te Awahou (Foxton river loop) and Otaki, sand dune protection at Foxton Beach, a new sandpit and equipment shed for the Foxton Maori pre-school and

collecting more than $500 in donations and 35 banana boxes of donated food at local supermarkets for the Salvation Army food bank. As a result of Rotary’s enthusiastic works on the day, there were a number of enquiries

from the public about how they could join a Rotary Club. If you have read this and feel you can contribute more to your community and want to find out more about Rotary and the location of their nearest club, dial freephone 08004ROTARY.

Drivers should be wary in May The New Zealand Automobile Association says May is the worst month of the year for road crashes due to drivers being blinded by sun-strike. Sun-strike is when the angle of sunlight hitting a windscreen creates glare that is very hard for a driver to see through. The problem is worst on winter mornings and afternoons, when the sun is low in the sky, and the AA and Specsavers are wanting to help make more drivers aware of the risks. ‘‘Sun-strike may seem like it’s just a minor annoyance when you’re driving but every year we have about two people killed and 200 people injured in crashes where the driver was blinded by dazzling sunlight,’’ says AA Motoring Affairs general manager Mike Noon. ‘‘May is the highest risk month and from now through to August is when drivers need to be extra careful.’’ The most common types of crashes involving sun-strike are people pulling out from a side-street or driveway into the path of another vehicle they did not see, or rearending a vehicle that had stopped. Sun-strike also adds risks for cyclists, pedestrians and motorcyclists on the road, as they can more easily be hidden in the glare due to their smaller size. AA tips for drivers to minimise sunstrike risks: — Anticipate when it may happen and use your visors or sunglasses. — Go for polarised sunglasses as these are best at combating glare. — Drive with your headlights on so your vehicle is easier to see. — Keep your windscreen clean inside and out. — If you are hit by sun-strike, slow down and be extra cautious in your driving.

Fears as flasher :0!(0!=& targets girls

by Lin Ferguson lin.ferguson@wanganuichronicle.co.nz

Two reports of a flasher targeting young girls in the Aramoho area over the weekend have Wanganui Police concerned. They say parents need to be aware of where their children are walking. The first incident was about 1pm on Saturday, when the man allegedly exposed himself to a 10-year-old girl in Peat Park. The second was on the river walkway not far from Wanganui Rowing Club just after 11am yesterday, when the same man allegedly exposed himself to two 10-year-old girls,%*&-+$ and a young boy. )#*+& Sergeant Kevin Smith said the *((,-*+'% !*,%!1.8 man was described as about *+& !%#"-'-+$ metres tall, of medium build, well dressed in a T-shirt and jeans and with tidily cut ‘‘darkish’’ hair. On Saturday he wore a green T-shirt and yesterday it was reddish. It was also worrying that the man was trying to approach the girls as he exposed himself to them, Mr Smith said. After both incidents the children had run off to the nearest houses to get help, he said. ‘‘The children were all very upset, nervous and scared,’’ Mr Smith said. The warmer weather over the

by David Ogilvie Mahe Drysdale reckons world single sculls champion Ondrej Synek and the first Billy Webb Challenge winner Olaf Tufte could be enticed to Wanganui for next year’s event. In the 2010 version of the Prospace Billy Webb on Saturday Drysdale won, beating his friend and world No 3 Alan Campbell (Britain) by five lengths. But for next year he insists that work to attract the worldclass rowers must start virtually straight away. His recipe? Early discussions with the top rowers, sorting out with them the right timing for such an event in 2011, and taking it from there. And Drysdale believes that because of what the leading rowers saw around New Zealand and at the Lake Karapiro championships, they’ll be very keen to return for training camps. ‘‘Synek was very, very keen. I think he would have been here this year, but his wife was having a baby — he wasn’t going to leave her hanging while he was racing here. But he’s definitely one we can get back. ‘‘In some ways, though, you (Wanganui) might just have to see with the rowers ‘just what is the ideal time for you’?’’ Go to them first, says Drysdale. Probably the same time period, the end of November/early December was the best. ‘‘That’s the time — when they’re looking at training camps and heading overseas to train. ‘‘I think that with the World Championships being here, all the (overseas) people saw what we’ve

He has been with the Levin practice for five years and initiated budget ‘parvo clinics’ to combat deadly Canine Parvo virus. ‘‘We have a wonderful team of friendly and devoted staff, who approach animal care with a devoted passion,’’ Dr Clark said. ‘‘ Levin is a wonderful town and I have come to love its people and its countryside.’’ Dr Tracey Wallace will take over the role of head small animal vet on June 30.

Trackster inspires new Kia Soul

T

he second generation Kia Soul has arrived in New Zealand with an expanded choice which includes a 2.0-litre flagship model, an increased specification level and more competitive pricing. A $29,990 starting price is $500 below the previous model and includes the introduction of three years or 45,000km free servicing, which is transferable to a subsequent owner during that period. ‘‘Soul has been a major hit for Kia in key markets like the US and the release of the new generation model provides an opportunity to step it up here,’’ said Todd McDonald, general manager of Kia Motors New Zealand. ‘‘While it was never a volume model for Kia in New Zealand, the car gained a loyal following through its individual styling, practical use of space and all-round ease and satisfaction of ownership. ‘‘It’s now even more stylish and practical, and we are adding further to the appeal with increased equipment, more engine choices and sharp pricing, along with our new free servicing offer.’’ Built on an all-new platform — which is shared with the latest Cerato family — the allnew Soul design has been inspired by the Kia Trackster concept vehicle. The new Soul was created at Kia’s American Design Centre in California and the exterior similarities between Trackster and new Soul are easy to spot. The large trapezoidal lower air intake is nearly a direct

While none of the exterior body panels are carried over from the original Soul, the upright stance, squared shoulders, wraparound greenhouse, high-mounted tail lights and confidence-inspiring ride height are all hallmark design elements from the first generation model. carryover from the concept and the location of the fog lights — down low and pushed to the leading edges — mirror those on the Trackster. The ‘‘back-pack’’ tailgate is another design cue lifted from the Trackster. While none of the exterior body panels are carried over from the original Soul, the upright stance, squared shoulders, wraparound greenhouse, high-mounted tail lights and confidence-inspiring ride height are all hallmark

design elements from the first generation model. The new Kia Soul has slightly increased dimensions with the length up by 20mm (4140mm), width by 15mm (1800mm) while height drops 41mm (down to 1619mm), which makes it easier to get in and out. The new dimensions and the extended wheelbase (up by 20mm to 2570mm) have improved the vehicle’s practicality, with more space for people and cargo, plus the

tailgate opening is now 62mm wider (1005mm), providing easier access to the cargo bay. New Soul is much stronger than before, with 66 per cent ultra-high strength or high strength steel used in its structure, plus stronger connections along the cowl, upper and lower B-pillars and between the C-pillars. These measures result in a 29 per cent increase in torsional rigidity, benefitting the steering, handling and ride, as well as refinement.

It’s also quieter, thanks to detailed changes to the suspension and increased use of sound deadening materials and noise isolation technology. The outgoing Soul was available with a 1.6-litre engine which continues with 95kW output while a 115kW 2.0-litre option has been added to the new range providing extra performance. Also, there are now two levels of specification with the 1.6-litre engine offered in EX and SX grades and a top-of-therange 2.0-litre SX variant. The six-speed automatic transmission is standard on all models and also providing specification highlights on all models are a low tyre pressure warning system, LED daytime running lights and Kia’s Flex Steer system which offers three levels of steering assistance. The Soul EX features airconditioning, cruise control, smart key and push-button start, power windows, remote locking with alarm, premium audio with Bluetooth connectivity, rear parking sensors and 17-inch alloy wheels with a $29,990 pricetag. The SX model gets premium upholstery, climate control airconditioning, a chilled glovebox, eight-way power driver’s seat adjustment, heated and ventilated front seats, front and rear parking sensors with camera, rear privacy glass, supervision instrument cluster and 18-inch alloy wheels. Kia Soul SX pricing is $33,490 with the 1.6-litre engine and $35,490 the 2.0-litre unit.
